The holiday season has arrived, and with it the hunt to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. The holidays are also a great time to give back to local communities and to those in need. From supporting small businesses and charitable organizations to shopping sustainably, here are four convenient ways to give back while you shop on Amazon this season.

Support charitable organizations. Help deliver smiles and holiday cheer to those in need by shopping at: AmazonSmile offers the same products and the same low prices, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate a portion of the purchase price of eligible products to a charity of your choice. You can also donate directly to charities by purchasing requested items from the thousands of AmazonSmile Charity Lists available, which are managed directly by the charities themselves.

Support small businesses. Support small businesses this holiday by shopping Amazon’s Small Business Gift Guide, which includes woman-owned, military family-owned, and Black-owned businesses, and top gift picks from celebrities Gabrielle Union, Drew Barrymore, and Billy Porter. You can also discover one-of-a-kind handcrafted goods and unique gifts by local makers on Amazon Handmade.

Gift (RED). For the fifth consecutive year, (RED) and Amazon are teaming up to provide customers a destination to shop gifts that give back. Every purchase on the Amazon (RED) storefront supports the fight against global health emergencies like COVID and AIDS and funds life-saving programs in communities most in need. In addition to customer favorites like the (PRODUCT)RED Theragun mini and Apple Watch Series 7 (PRODUCT)RED, this year’s selection includes a new collection of (ANOVA)RED Precision Cookers, LARQ Bottles (PRODUCT)RED, (VAHDAM)RED teas, and more.

Shop sustainable. Reduce environmental impact this season by recycling old items, composting holiday food waste, and shopping sustainably on Amazon by searching for Climate Pledge Friendly products. The Climate Pledge Friendly label recognizes products with improvements in at least one aspect of sustainability. Eligible products are certified by sustainability certifications, including Amazon’s Compact by Design certification, as part of Amazon’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and become net zero carbon by 2040.
